Volunteers

As with all Hopkins Football programs, we are heavily reliant on parent volunteers for our coaching and other operational requirements.  The Flag Football Program is not intended to be a “Drop-Off” league for parents.  All players MUST have a responsible party at practice/games (ridesharing and parents may be responsible for multiple kids as long you are not reliant on only a coach).
